Two Images

By John Edwards

a wave surge smacks against

this super-yacht languishing

marina-bound and impotent now

portals still gleam in clear sun

looking out on peace

no sound of incendiaries here

an explosive surge exposes living rooms

opening them as a can-opener would

soul less eyes of the apartment block

glare out onto shattered shards of windows

holding fingers with broken chairs

a silence grieves

John Edwards (C) 30th March 2022
